Brembo Gold

Hey Guys,

I recently put new gloss black MRR 228 wheels on my SS. I want to paint my calipers to look like the "gold" brembos. They are currently purple which I still like but its time for a change. I don't want to powder coat due to down time. I know the typical caliper paint brands like VHT, Duplicolor, G2 and all that but which is the closest to the official "Brembo Gold"?
Also, if anyone has done some in this color, pics would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Adam

If you can find a paint code, I’d contact G2 with that number and they may be able to match it.

A quick google search has taught me that apparently Honda Inca Pearl is a nearly perfect match.

Paint code: Y-61P

might want to verify this before buying but I did get a lot of hits when searching for “Brembo Gold Paint Code”

Silly question, but would STI calipers bolt on? They're already gold, and they're the same caliper and use the same pads, even.
EDIT: Removed, due to being junk. :(

Removed link. Whoops, didn't read far enough.
